Here are a few reviews of this year’s amazing Viscera Film Festival, which was held at the Egyptian in Los Angeles.
Announced at the Viscera event was a new service of the organization called MoHA, the Mistresses of Horror Alliance, which is headed up by French-Canadian filmmaker Maude Michaud. Allow me to quote myself (me being LB):
Where Viscera seeks to promote and encourage female filmmakers externally, MoHA seeks to connect those filmmakers with each other to encourage collaboration amongst our ranks. This is all a part of the message of Viscera, that we’re better working together like the organs of the human body (y’know…viscera.)
The website for MoHA is still being worked on, but if I’m remembering correctly, it should be up before the end of the year.
Do you live in L.A. and want to help out during an amazing event? The Viscera Film Festival has an open call for volunteers! All interested and serious and seriously interested parties should email them at firstname.lastname@example.org!
A few scant details have been released about the Viscera Film Festival’s July 7 Red Carpet event that kicks off the 2012-2013 tour. You should keep an eye on their website for more information. If you live in L.A., near L.A., or happen to be going to L.A. at that time, you should go to the event which is being held at the world famous, historic Egyptian Theatre! It boasts an impressive line-up of international short horror films as well as some of the most spectacular filmmakers around!

In case you missed it when this was posted in late February, here is the segment of Inside Horror featuring Viscera Film Festival founders Shannon Lark and Heidi Honeycutt discussing all things Viscera, women in horror, and their February 25 charity event MARROW which was a drive to sign people up to donate their bone marrow (the link goes to the Facebook event page, but there you can learn more about the event.)
